Description

The report presents the final assessment results of the APEC Supply Chain Connectivity Framework Action Plan (SCFAP). The SCFAP aims to improve the performance of supply chains in the APEC region, with a target of 10 percent reduction in time, cost and uncertainty by 2015. The results show that some progress has been made in reducing time and cost for traders. Nevertheless, gaps remain and these should be addressed in the next phase of the SCFAP. The second phase should also address emerging areas in the global supply chain such as e-commerce, digital customs and cybersecurity.
